Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. My heart goes out to the family. Death is something we will never get use to. In fact, God's Word refers to death as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) It is comforting to know that very soon our loving Heavenly Father, Jehovah, will remove death once and for all and give us the opportunity to see our loved ones again here on the earth. (John 5:28,29) May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain you during this difficult time. (Isaiah 61:1, 2) Please visit our website at JW.ORG on how to cope with this "enemy" death.

Bonjour Joan & Linda,
je vous souhaites à toutes deux ainsi qu’à tous les membres de vos familles, mes plus sincères condoléances. Désolée de ne pas avoir pu assister aux funérailles, je n’ai pas pu avoir congé. Sachez que mes pensées étaient avec vous. Je garderai de très bons souvenirs de votre papa. C’était un homme authentique, bon, généreux et taquin. Je suis de cœur avec vous chères cousines. Bon courage! Johanne Xxx

Jacinthe and Carole join me in presenting our sincere condolences to Leo's family, and especially to Joan and Linda.

Oncle Leo has been part of my life almost since I was born. I lost my dad at a young age and Leo had been a father figure to me in my teens. We have remained very close ever since. I will greatly miss his ''joie de vivre'', his laughter and his love. I will think of him everytime I'm playing Cribbage, a game we have shared up to the last time we saw each other. He is now with his dear Marthe. I will always love you both. Marc XOXOX

Leo was a good man who was always a joy to be around. He had a smile so big it went to his eyes and lit them up. I will miss his stories and his grin that reminded me of a boy who was about to prank someone. He was from the generation that worked hard to provide for his family, never complained and never had a bad word to say about anyone. This summer will not be the same sitting on George & Louise Patenaude's deck without him. I will miss teasing him and his stories about his family and his military service and splitting a beer with him. He was most proud of his family and the lifetime of joy they gave him. Seems to me the Hill will never be the same. Rest in peace my friend, Martha has been waiting for you.
